School tuitions for Lebanese children

Project Report | May 11, 2023
The country with the highest food prices inflation

By Giacomo Pizzi | Project Leader

Recently Lebanon the World Bank has declared that Lebanon is the country with the highest food prices inflation in the world; people cannot afford to buy neither food nor hygiene materials anymore due to the dramatic increase of prices, and they are obliged to halt their children education due to the crisis.

Although Lebanon has passed through many years of war and crisis, families used to always find a way to send their children to school and university. But now, for the first time in history, Education is only for the elite, and this will lead to an uneducated generation…..

Indeed, the crisis created a bigger gap inside the Lebanese society. Most of the families are not able to pay neither the tuitions fees nor the stationary or the books for school.

At the same time, most of the public schools in Lebanon has never opened this year. Among the main reasons there is the high cost for transportation, due to the high price of fuel: teachers are forced to choose either to go to work (spending their full salary for transportation) or live. Since public schools are closed the only alternative are the private schools with high fees. 

 

As part of a wider 360 degree intervention in support of families, Pro Terra Sancta has been supporting 300 students by paying the full tuition and buying school material such as books, pens, pencils. We aim to support as many in the second part of the year.

We need to keep on investing on the children that are the future of Lebanon!
